May Favourites

Hey guys!

Another month, another favourites. This month has been a rather slow moving one and I'm so excited for the holidays coming up! A few more assignments at Uni to get done and I'm a free person...for a little while...squeeeeeee.

1. Real Techniques Expert Face Brush

A cult favourite and actually the first Real Techniques brush I bought. I've broken the pattern of constantly using Sigma makeup brushes and I'm glad I have as this buffing brush is amazing. It's relatively cheap, dense and small in size which makes it extremely easy to work foundation into the skin. I find my foundation looks a lot more natural and seamless when using this brush and my makeup also lasts for longer...don't ask how but it does.

2. Toni&Guy Shampoo and Conditioner for Damaged Hair

I have very dry, frizzy, easily damaged hair and am constantly on the look out for products that claim to de-frizz and replenish. Aside from the conditioner "Retread" by Lush, the Toni&Guy shampoo and conditioners are the only hair washing products (that are relatively affordable) I'm thoroughly impressed with and actually make a difference to my frizzy hair situation. Not to mention they smell a-m-a-z-i-n-g!

3. Nude 'tude Eyeshadow Palette by theBalm

I've done a review on this palette HERE.

4. Treacle Moon Bath and Shower Gel in Vanilla

Basically I was in the supermarket looking for a new shower gel as I'd run out of my last one and came across this product by Treacle Moon. It's packaging is gorgeous and the perfect size as I won't run out of it in two seconds, it lathers extremely well and smells of sweet vanilla (I went on a smelling rampage of all the shower gels I the only one who does this?). I actually sat in the car smelling this all the way home because I'm a weirdo like that. But honestly, if this shower gel was edible...

5. Rimmel Wake Me Up Concealer in "Ivory"

I've really been loving this concealer in the month of May and have used it every time I do my makeup. It's creamy formula is very easily blendible and works great under the eyes if you're looking for a more radiant look. The shade Ivory is perfect for my natural skin tone and even more perfect for when I've tanned as it works great as a highlighter. Would highly recommend this concealer to anyone.

6. Harry Potter

I had to choose a picture from the first movie because they're all SO CUTE! 

As aforementioned in my previous blog post I've gone on a little Harry Potter frenzy this month. It was sparked by a very boring evening watching YouTuber's vlogs touring the Harry Potter set and I had this sudden urge to watch every single movie in order from start to finish...and I can tell you I succeeded this a week (yikes). Followed was that 'post-tv show/movie saga sad feeling' when there isn't any left to watch and you wish it was all real life. Or does that just happen to me?

7. Peanut Butter & Chocolate Oreos

I wish I never found these in the supermarket...I'm hooked! Honestly, if you're a peanut butter fan you will absolutely love these. Just like your normal oreo except with a half peanut butter, half chocolate cream filling. *Hashtag foodgasm*

So that's it for this month, I hope you enjoyed. Hopefully next month I'll have some more exciting things to include because I feel as though these products weren't all that thrilling.

What are your May favourites?
